    Connecticut State Police
    Kristy Ellison, 36, of Amston, is accused of threatening to "blow up and shoot up" a day care facility in Hebron.

    Police have arrested a Connecticut mother accused of threatening to "blow up and shoot up" a day care in Hebron last week, authorities said.

    According to state police, Kristy Ellison, 36, of Amston, became upset about an administrative issue at the Discovery Zone Learning Center in Hebron on Friday and told several employees she was going to "blow up and shoot up" the facility.

    Troopers went to the day care at 45 Pendleton Drive in Hebron around 9:50 a.m. on Friday to investigate. State police said Ellison turned herself in at Troop K barracks and was taken into custody.

    State police charged her with second-degree breach of peace and second-degree threatening.

    Ellison is scheduled to appear in Rockville Superior Court on Dec. 22. It wasn't immediately clear if she had an attorney who could comment on the allegations.
